    Legendary Chip Chop

    Chip Chop is the legendary 20-acre beach compound set on Vineyard Sound. The property has lived large in Martha’s Vineyard lore since the 1940s when it was built for celebrated Broadway star Katharine Cornell. For many decades it has hosted a broad spectrum of well-known figures from the worlds of literature, theater, cinema, and politics. There are two separate lots – one 17.4 acres and the other 2.84 acres. A mile of private shoreline surrounds the property, including 2000 feet of sandy beach on the exquisite swimming waters of Vineyard Sound, and a large swath of sandy beach on Lake Tashmoo. There are no fewer than 4 homes - a 3-bedroom main house, a 2-bedroom caretaker’s cottage, and 2 elegant beach houses built in 2007 which offer some of the most astonishing water views on Martha’s Vineyard. The Pond Pavilion and the Ocean Pavilion are 2 separate, detached bedroom suites. The swimming pool overlooking Vineyard Sound with views of the mainland beyond is simply stunning. A Har-Tru tennis court is discretely nestled in a private corner of the property. Supremely stylish and yet consummately casual, this famed Martha's Vineyard property is a unique offering and could never be recreated.
